Collection: A Midsummer Night's Dream
Punctuated with love-in-idleness (pansies):
"Yet mark'd I where the bolt of Cupid fell:
It fell upon a little western flower,
Before, milk-white, now purple with love's wound,
And maidens call it love-in-idleness."
(Act 2, Scene 1)
"What angel wakes me from my flowery bed?"
(Act 3, Scene 1)
All quotes from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
Midsummer has always been the most important time of year to gather magical herbs. Like the sun, which is at its peak on the Summer Solstice, the plants are at the height of their power. In Latvia, Midsummer Eve (June 23rd) is also known as 'Herb Evening'.

I love this gorgeous collection Moira, very pretty!
Thank you Sylvie - so glad you love this collection, it seems to be growing slowly - I think you are right it would make a great quilt.
Beautiful collection ! Love how the designs combinates in that way that several people using same fabric would made some totally différents arrangements. Great for a quilt !
Thank you Sue Ellen - the swatch is here and looks fabulous - so glad you love it! Putting it up for sale now...
A lovely addition to your Midsummer Night's Dream collection! I love the way you've sett off the individual flowers in the frames.
Thank you so much - Tara, Jan and Sigrid - for the lovely comments!
Gorgeous! What a lovely idea to feature the larger flowers within trellises of wild thyme!
This is lovely, Moira! This charming pattern makes a fabulous repeat!
Wow! Isabella, Joanna, Jill, Vannina and - again - Olga! Such lovely comments ladies you have made my evening - thank you!

Aw, so glad you liked the quote. The Globe Theatre needs to make some seat pillows using your design!!!
Beautiful and clever!
This is a beautiful design!
So gorgeous and elegant!!
Lovely and so very elegant.
Love the quote Olga - perhaps I should rename it - I will! Thanks Sylvie!
"What angel wakes me from my flowery bed?" (Act 3.1.135) Your wild herb and flowery design would make amazing soft furnishings. Great collection
Way cool design Moira! I love it! :-)
Sue Ellen, Rhonda and Julie : What can I say in the face of such praise - thank you, I am blushing!
Beautiful design Moira!
This outstanding design depicts Shakespeare's poetic words with elegant finesse!
Oh, I really like this new version! It's even more like a parterre, with the edgings around the main plants in each bed. And the connection with the Shakespeare citation adds even more liveliness. I also admire your having been able to work the contest theme into both your own personal style and an existing collection.
Oh thank you ladies - Amy, Angela, Lynn, Ceri and Magenta - for such beautiful comments, you've made my day!
This is so pretty and I love your reference to Shakespeare's Wild Thyme. Wonderful!
Very pretty Moira!
Lovely illustrations Moira!
Nice correlation to Shakespeare to this beautiful design!
